Sweet Strawberry Ombre Gift Bags for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry stamp set bundle to create my project for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  We’ve got a theme challenge this week and this is what I made for it.

Here is the theme for our projects this week:

I started by inked the vine image from the Sweet Strawberry photopolymer stamp set with Soft Succulent ink, stamping it on scrap paper and then stamping it on the front of one of the 2021-2023 In Color Ombre Gift Bags.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.  I punched the end of the panel with the Banners Pick A Punch and then adhered it to the gift bag with Stampin’ Seal.

I stamped the strawberries and leaves from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Polished Pink, Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent inks on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Then I stamped the small flower image from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on the Basic White card stock panel.  I punched the images out with the coordinating Strawberry Builder Punch and then colored the flower centers with Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the punched pieces together and then to the Ombre Gift Bag with Mini Glue Dots.  I adhered a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels around the strawberries and then added one of the Clever Clasps (on sale for $3.75 while supplies last through June 30) at the top to hold the folded gift bag closed.

I made a second bag with one of the Polished Pink Ombre Gift Bags, perfect for small gifts or gift cards!
